What do you like in an mc?
I can’t really determine this because what really matters to me is that the character is well-developed and has an interesting personality. So basically, I just want to see that he/she is the main character for a reason.
What plots do u like?
Anything that has an original concept. I don’t really mind the theme or the genre, but I usually prefer light-hearted stories and I tend to avoid the ones with heavy subjects.
Happy endings or sad endings?
Do u prefer it when choices matter?
It depends on the story. Overall, I don’t mind if choices don’t matter that much, but pointless choices like what to eat for breakfast are… well, pointless.
When reading what’s the first thing you notice/think about the first chapter?
Lately I often decide whether I like a story or not within a few minutes. So if it starts with a super long, unnecessary author note/narration or if the characters are being introduced one by one, I probably won’t even continue reading it. But if it starts with an interesting intro, I usually have high hopes for the story.
Do u like advanced directing even if it’s a shorter chapter?
I care more about the plot and the characters than about advanced directing, but still, it depends on how you define a shorter chapter. I prefer if it’s about 10 minutes.
Any directing/coding tips?
It’s pretty simple, but the best directing tip I’ve ever received is to always specify which direction the characters are facing, what layer they are at, and to add an looping animation when you start a new scene. This helps me spare a lot of headaches and avoid unnecessary, but awkward directing errors.
When writing do you like to focus on the dialogue or the coding?
Do you plan or make it up as you go?
I used to make up everything along the way, but now I’m trying to plan in advance.
How long does it take to write one chapter?
Well, if I have the time and I feel really inspired, the actual writing takes me 2-3 days. But I definitely don’t write every day. Sometimes I’m busy, sometimes I’m lazy, and sometimes I’m just not feeling it.
If you do plan, what do u focus the most on?
What I mostly focus on is that the story would make sense as a whole. Plot holes are my pet peeves, and I also try to make sure that I don’t leave questions open, unless it was intentional.
Do you like criticism?
If it’s constructive, yes of course. Sometimes I actually wish I would receive more of these, so that I would know how to make my stories better.
How do u respond to negative/mean fan mail?
I received one mean fanmail and my reply was mean Besides this, I had some fanmail about my episodes being short. I have to admit it took me a while to realize that my readers were right, so my replies were basically “Sorry, I can’t” or “I don’t think they are that short” But now I’m pretty grateful to these readers because this was about my first story, and thanks to them, I think I managed to improve.
